This one is sort of related to the worst ever thread but these would be those movies that were intended to be hideous films and turned out hysterical. Only made a new post because the other limited it to 70's flicks.

I challenge you to top these two.

Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter. (http://imdb.com/title/tt0311361/)

J-Men Forever. (http://imdb.com/title/tt0080940/)

Dang! Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter is on my list! :D

I'd add:

Streetfighter (with Jean Claude Van Damme)
Mortal Kombat
Student Bodies
Versus (awesome awesome bloody camp Japanese film!)

My apologies for not reading the original post more carefully. For unintentionally funny horror movies:

+Bride of the Monster. You can't beat Ed Wood. :)
+Manos: Hands of Fate - but only the MST3K version. Otherwise, it might put you into a coma.
+Roller Blade. Not horror, exactly, but a HORRIBLE (and hilarious) post-apocalyptic science fiction thing that involved naked nuns on rollerskates fighting against a villian which was obviously a handpuppet... no, I'm not joking.

That's all I can think of for now.

I agree with Starship Troopers and Deep Blue Sea. Also Gymkata, Prayer of the Rollerboys, and anything with the Coreys (Feldman and Haim). The newer, the better, since their movies got progressively worse as they aged.

'Carry on Screaming'. Still hilarious. 'Please Sir' -probably only Brits of a certain vintage will know it, but it's a 70s movie based on a sitcom about an idealistic teacher at a rough school. 'Anaconda' - oh, yes. Anything over-wrought with Bette Davis, especially that one where she's the governess and tells her story to the horrid bullying schoolgirls she has to teach.

The plotline's silly (scientist turns his assistant into a snake for no readily apparent reason), but Strother Martin does a fine job as the mad scientist and there are lots of scenes with shirtless young Dirk Benedict :D .

Jackie Chan's Fantasy Mission Force is one of the greatest cheesy movies I've ever seen. Just watched it for the first time last night, but I'm going to have to watch it again.

Battlefield Earth was so bad that you could seriously be mentally damaged from watching it more than once.

I had no idea there were so many movies about cheese...I did find this one on Google: http://biology.clc.uc.edu/fankhauser/Cheese/CHEESE_MOVIES.HTM and this one on IMDB: http://imdb.com/title/tt0085706/

*snicker* Ah, good ol' Battlefield Earth. Personally, I think it's hilarious if you're in the right frame of mind and able to take frequent coffee/tea/bathroom/"Why in the hell am I WATCHING this?" breaks. Otherwise, I think that Roger Ebert said it best:

"Battlefield Earth is like taking a bus trip with someone who has needed a bath for along time. It's not merely bad; it's unpleasant in a hostile way."

Anyone ever seen a movie called "Crimewave"? I used to watch it all the time as a teenager and only had one other friend who actually liked it.

Apparently I should list "Idiocracy" as a recent guilty pleasure since all the intellectual reviewers say it's nothing but potty humor. I still say Mike Judge is always one step ahead of everyone else.

The ones I watch because they're so bad and/or the acting is so over the top:

The Towering Inferno
Cleopatra
The Ten Commandments (Heston version)
Ben Hur (Heston again)
Quo Vadis (It's not that I'm anti-Biblical, it's just that these "epics" were so often so very overdone!)
The Day After Tomorrow
Volcano
Mars Attacks!


The ones I can watch again and again just because I love them -- lightweight, funny, unintentionally funny, tear-jerkers, horror that worked, horror that didn't, and simply classics:

Clueless
Tremors
Ghostbusters (I & II)
Nightmare on Elm Street
South Park, Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
The Princess Bride
Armageddon
Halloween
Men in Black
Pride and Prejudice (A&E/BBC version)
The Scream trilogy
Serenity
Independence Day
The Final Destination trilogy
Noises Off
Forbidden Planet
The Matrix
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Arsenic and Old Lace (Cary Grant being hilarious.)
Operation Petticoat (Cary Grant being Cary Grant.)
Now, Voyager
All the President's Men
Dark Victory
The Philadelphia Story
Stripes
Blazing Saddles
Stir Crazy
Young Frankenstein



And those I can't bear to ever, ever watch again:

Star Trek, the Motion Picture (It's just wrong.)
Hostel (WTF?)
The Ring 2 (Not what I expected, unlike the first.)
An American Haunting (See above.)
The Grudge II (One was enough.)
the second and third Matrix movies (One was enough.)
Old Yeller (Need I explain?)

Very true. I couldn't sit through this movie until I discovered the Battlefield Earth drinking game. Then it became soooooo much easier. But is it a guilty pleasure if you can't remember most of it?

Battlefield Earth? Definitely awful, but I don't that it's got a lock for worst movie ever. I think the Uwe Boll masterpiece 'Alone In The Dark' should be right up there with it.

The movie opens with a minute of tiny-fonted scrolling white text that explains what the movie then flashes back to explain again, and then there's narration to badly explain it again. It's also got some of the worst acting/casting I've ever seen (Tara Reid as a scientist), and one of the most uncomfortable love scenes ever filmed. (To be fair, Uwe topped Alone In The Dark's 'love' scene with the 'sex against a medieval cell door' scene in his next film, Bloodrayne.)

Yeah, it's been several years, but I remember that every time the camera angle tilted in a weird way, or there was some awful colored filter, you had to take a drink. Thankfully, you get plastered pretty fast.

Time Bandits was great! "Don't touch it! It's pure evil!"

Army of Darkness. Great oneliners.

My husband loves. . . loves Ghostbusters. True story, when we first started dating, that movie came on tv and he spun around in a circle. Like a kid, in a circle. He was a grown man. He still has his GB blanket from when he was a kid.

I love him so much.

...these movies you've listed don't qualify as "cheese" or "guilty pleasures." All the President's Men isn't exactly "cheesy." And the comedies you've got are classics - Blazing Saddles, Stripes, Ghostbusters.

You've got a lot of good movies. But I somehow couldn't quite see going with these as "cheese." Just my 2 cents. :)
